Named Gift Opportunities

Named gifts provide a perpetual means to honor and recognize an individual, a family, or an organization. For more information on these opportunities, please contact the Foundation Office.

Tax Tip

A charitable gift to the Foundation should be made on or before December 31 of the year in which you wish to receive the charitable income tax deduction.

Related-Use Regulations

If the College can use items of personal property (including equipment), you will receive a maximum allowable deduction. If there is no related use, you will receive a smaller deduction. Contact your financial adviser for special related-use issues in giving.


You must obtain an appraisal for any noncash contribution which exceeds $5,000. The appraisal summary section of IRS Form 8283 must be completed and attached to your income tax return on which the deduction is claimed. No appraisal is required for a gift of publicly traded securities for which market quotations are readily available on an established securities market.

Gift Stewardship

Your gift will be used specifically for the purpose(s) they were given and treated with the utmost care and confidentiality per your instructions.

Gift Recognition

All gifts to the Foundation qualify for appropriate levels of recognition from the TSJC Educational Foundation.
